with the adhesive backing. Location of the transmitter eye on the source
device may need to be adjusted later to achieve best IR performance.
NOTE: Infrared windows can be seen by shining a flashlight onto
the front of the device – the IR sensor will appear as a small,
round diode behind the fascia.

2 Connect the IR TX 3.5mm jack to the IR TX port on the EX-1UTP-IR-50-
POH TRANSMITTER. For bidirectional control of source and display from
either location, connect an IR link cable between the IR RX port and your
control system.
3 A control system can be connected using an IR link cable to pass
remote control commands between source and display via the extender.
Connect the stereo end of the IR link cable to the IR RX port of the
TRANSMITTER and the mono end to the to the control system used.
Alternatively, control of the display from the source location can be
achieved by placing the IR RX receiving eye in clear line of sight with the
remote handset used to control. Adjustment of the IR RX eye may be
required later to achieve the best performance.

12v power
NOTE: Although WyreStorm
products are tested with Cat5e,
we recommend Cat6 due
to increased bandwidth and
improved capacity for handling
large transmissions and power
along a single cable.
NOTE: An infrared signal can be passed from TRANSMITTER
location to display RECEIVER e.g. a control system transmitting a
“TV off” command.

Ensure all connectors are pushed securely to each port and supported
by the connector strain relief clip to prevent them from becoming loose.

We strongly recommend using supplied mounting brackets to
secure TRANSMITTER & RECEIVER baluns. Sudden movement of
these devices could lead to loss of picture/sound if connections
become loose or strained, resulting in unnecessary service callbacks.

Cat5e/6 Cable Performance Guide
The quality of cable and RJ45 termination is essential for
successful distribution of video, audio, control and power from
TRANSMITTER to RECEIVER. Poor cable and terminations lead to
intermittent performance and longer install times.
Cat5e Wiring Guide
Finally, add the provided 12v power supply to the TRANSMITTER. The
PoH function carries power along the length of the cable to power the
display RECEIVER so no additional power is required at the display
location. Illuminated LINK lights on TRANSMITTER and RECEIVER will
indicate a successful connection.
The quality of termination for every RJ45
is essential. Poor terminations leads to
intermittent performance and longer install

Regardless of manufacturer or product, the majority of installation
difficulties can typically be attributed to communication problems
between devices or when high bandwidth transmissions are attempted
with insufficient cable/connections. Should you find yourself in such a
situation, we have drawn up the following checklist of general issues
and causes that should help you shoot your way out of trouble without
seeking further assistance.
No or poor quality picture?
Device Connection - Are you connected and powered? Double check
all HDMI, UTP and 12v power connections are firmly inserted into correct
ports and that all devices are powered. In the event of a poor quality or
excessive cable run, the 5v DC input of the RECEIVER may have to be
Cable length – is your signal struggling to transmit signals or power
the distance of
your cable? If you are approaching the maximum capacity
of your transmission cable distance, try changing to long cable mode on
the DIP switch.
Signal strength – the use of cable joins, stranded patch panels, wall
outlets and stranded patch leads as interconnects between them, can
significantly reduce signal strength. Use solid core straight, straight
through connections wherever possible.
Resolution - If you reduce the resolution of the source, do you get a
picture? If so, this suggests a conflicting resolution between source and
display or a bandwidth capacity issue with your cable. Check all inputs
and outputs share the same resolution and make sure the signal is being
successfully transmitted the full length of your cable run.
Picture ‘snow’ / HD ‘noise’ – signifies a failure to fully establish
signal and can often be caused by poorly terminated RJ45 connectors
or excessive cable lengths. Ensure your cable is correctly wired to
568B standards. Try swapping in a display and RECEIVERs from a fully
functioning location – if the problem continues on the same output, turn
off all equipment and swap your signal carrying cables at both ends.
Cable quality and condition – HDMI cable/connectors can be easily
damaged and the quality of material can vary, especially in lower price
brackets. Successful transmission of video, audio and control, as well
as POH functionality can all be affected by cable and termination quality.
Always use good quality leads and cables, with RJ45 connectors wired
to the 568B standard at both ends. Should transmission problems be
experienced, try swapping cables/leads for those already working to see
if this improves your image to identify cable issue as source of probem.
Blu-Ray, 3D - Make sure all your equipment has been configured
and enabled to transmit and accept the signal, or is capable of passing
a signal. Are resolutions between source and display compatible and
cable adequate for the large bandwidth required by Blu-ray and 3D
4K - Are you trying to pass a 4K signal? This product is not designed
to pass 4K resolutions.
IR Control
Check IR transmitter and receiver eyes are correctly positioned
to allow infrared signals to be transmitted and received through the
extenders. IR TX transmitter eye should be fixed firmly over infrared
sensors of devices. IR RX receiver eye should be attached on or near
devices ensuring a clear line of sight to the remote control used to
Is your remote control powered and sending a signal? As IR is invisible
to the naked eye, check your remote is transmitting a signal by viewing
the remote handset sensor through a digital camera/camera phone – the
sensor should flash when a button on the handset is held down.
IR signal dropout can be experienced due to exterior emissions of
infrared radiation. Ensure IR transmitters and receivers are away from
direct sunlight, halogen lighting and plasma screens that may interfere
with IR signals.
Safety Recommendations:
Do not expose this apparatus to any form of moisture, including the
placement of anything containing liquids on the unit.
To prevent risk of electric shock or fire hazard, ensure apparatus is
installed in an unobstructed, well ventilated area away from any external
heat sources - including other electrical devices which may produce heat.
Only use attachments / accessories specified by the manufacturer and
refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
Failure to adhere to these recommendations may invalidate your
